    No chance, last year also he was sacrificed for Ham.

    No need to read anything to FP1 just yet, it's just a setup session.

    Like us ??? I mean I saw Ver lapping while we was on track and on 2 laps he was 1st 1 sec behind Lec and then 7+ tenths behind. Then I missed him and suddenly I saw him doing a lap just under 1 tenth from Lec and then he pitted. So he was on this stint and suddenly from 7 tenths behind he lower his lap time ,or he pitted and done that lap ??!!

    There’s track evolution added to that. Also compared to Ferrari & mercs, RB did run long out on track.
    At this point Lap times are nothing. So I wouldn’t read too much into that especially from RB.

    FP3 might give some direction into quali & race.

    he was sacrificed for Ham in Singapore, so why they would change anything
    Hamilton did say that Bottas is racing against him for WDC, so he thinks that Bottas is not his butler in this race-

    BTW. Mercs has won every race here

    Lewis is talking his usual rubbish. The Butler will receive orders until Lewis secures the WDC. If he does it with several races before the end of the season, then The Butler will be allowed to finish in front of Lewis and even be treated with a win for his contributions to the Merc team.

    I think it’s good if we call him by name, rather than those words..?? Just a suggestion.

    Too early to tell, but Charles certainly seems to have the bit between his teeth. Nice to see Singapore didn’t dampen his spirits too much.

    Crofty such a biased commentator...!! How come he’s allowed to continue ???
    He says “K-Mag bolted for fresh Softs in Singapore at the end to avoid point to Mercs-Bottas, although Haas team won’t be benefitted with any point”.

    I’ve never seen or heard such kind of commentary before. His statements on Ferrari drivers, romance towards Ham & mercs would come from anywhere.

    Do come on now. When the first safety car came out at Singapore, wasn't he the one who started counted the scenarios where Mercedes would be benefited the most while Ferrari would lose position, then he came under the realization that ... ah, crap, they 're not coming to pits... :(((( (lol)

    It was one of the highlights of the race, to listen to them getting smacked over the back of the head, over, and over, and over again until the very minute our cars got P1 and P2 :D

    They have the new spec 4 Honda engine, Ferrari and Mercedes on older spec. Max is fastest in sector 1, should tell you everything about who's running their engine more aggressively
